Hello Adana, Turkey

After visiting Ferrol, Spain I travelled a total distance of about 3,728.03 km (2,316.49 mi) and reached the city of Adana. Adana is a major city in southern Turkey. The city is situated on the Seyhan river, 35 km (22 mi) inland from the Mediterranean Sea, in south-central Anatolia.

Adana lies in the heart of Çukurova, a geo-cultural region that covers the provinces of Mersin, Adana, Osmaniye, and Hatay. Home to six million people, Çukurova is one of the largest population concentrations in Turkey, as well as the most agriculturally productive area, owing to its large stretch of flat, fertile land.

Do you ever browse the kiosks at the mall? Have you ever been kayaking? Do you like yogurt? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, congratulations: you speak a little Turkish! All of the above words are examples of Turkish words that have snuck their way into the English-language lexicon.
